Local News

Just don't get me started on newspapers.

I don't know why in the age of the Internet people still look to TV for news. Tonight, I accidently turned on the 11 o'clock news from NBC's Baltimore affiliate, not remembering that the Olympics meant no SNL.

They spent the first 6 minutes and 45 seconds of the program explaining that it was snowing. This wasn't even the weather report. Now I'm happy that there wasn't a worse event to take the top story, but it's still ridiculous that people have to sit through a half hour just to learn what I've been told throughout the day via my RSS aggregator. And I can tell you that I spent far less than a half hour reading the news.

Although when I go back home (Philly) I will probably turn on whichever channel it is that's getting the HD camera for their helicopter.
